Volunteer of the Week

Sheryl Forbis
Augustine Literacy Project

The Augustine Literacy Project, an outreach ministry of Chapel Hill’s Church of the Holy Family, knows it has a treasure in Sheryl Forbis. Sheryl has tutored dozens of economically and academically disadvantaged children ranging in age from kindergarten to middle school, trained hundreds of tutors, put in ten years as a trainer and practicum coach, served six years on the Project’s board, and served two years as chair.  

She’s also opened her home to Augustine trainers who have come from out-of-town for the two-week training course. Sheryl is a first-rate leader and is described by her supervisor as “capable, compassionate, and committed, a person of character and conviction on whom an organization can count.”  

During her teaching career, Sheryl touched the lives of hundreds of students; now she is creating brighter futures for countless more. Thank you, Sheryl Forbis, for your tireless dedication and remarkable service!
